Dr. Mark Herbert "Bistek" Rosario has come out in public for the first time since the Hayden Kho sex video scandal broke out. He gave an interview with Jay Ruiz in a report shown tonight on TV Patrol.
What he had to say basically has been said by Eric Chua. He said Hayden Kho was a very close friend, somebody he considered like a brother. "This was a guy that I really trusted ... siyempre I got really angry din," Bistek said when he learned about the relationship between Hayden Kho and his girlfriend, Princess Velasco. The resident doctor says he's gone on voluntary leave from the hospital where he's working as a result of his being implicated in the scandal.
But one significant aspect of his story is that, as a doctor, he checked his friend Hayden's condition when they reportedly rushed to Hayden's condominium after the latter apparently tried to commit suicide and Bistek Rosario led the group in rushing Hayden to Makati Med. Dr. Mark Herbert "Bistek" Rosario, it now appears, probably saved Hayden's life.
"Napatawad ko na siya," says Bistek of his former friend Hayden Kho.
My impression is that Dr. Mark Herbert "Bistek" Rosario's TV persona in his interview with Jay Ruiz looks very much different from their group photograph (Hayden, Bistek and Eric) which by now has been flashed countless times on TV.
